Atlas Corps: Practical Steps in Achieving Mindfulness at Work
1). Be consciously present:
Mindfulness is above all, living but as per this subject matter, I’d say, working at the moment. Being aware and awake in the wake of your current task. When you’re consciously present at work you are aware of the moment-moment state of what’s going on around you and what’s going on within you. If you’re report writing, mindfulness requires you to focus on your task and avoid wandering thoughts on ‘Jade’s new promotion or how Tola got into an argument with Morgan’. Just acknowledge the thoughts and bring yourself back to your task at hand.
Reality: At the start of work daily, pause, reflect and note to self of your decision to be visibly and thoughtfully present at work as much as you can. Pause a bit to set this intention in mind.
